St. Barbara Religious Saints Medals Bracelet

Saint Barbara became the patron saint of artillerymen, military engineers, gunsmiths, miners and anyone else who worked with cannon and explosives, against thunder, lightning,and sudden death.
O God, Who didst adorn Thy holy Virgin and Martyr Barbara with extraordinary fortitude in the confession of the Faith, and didst console her in the most atrocious torments; grant us through her intercession perseverance in the fulfillment of Thy law and the grace of being fortified before our end with the holy Sacraments, and of a happy death. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

I was able to find such a beautiful vintage Mother of Pearl medal of St. Barbara made in Italy to create this bracelet honoring St. Barbara.
I wanted to create it very colorful and mixed materials from lampwork, glass pearl and wedding cake beads

So beautiful and colorful and I have never heard of wedding cake beads which ones are they? I bet it would be neat to create a wedding bracelet for a bride using them!!
